Keg & Bottle conditioned; Regular. Has been seen on Cask.

Full bodied jet-black ale with a pale-tan head. Abundant fresh hop aromas suggesting zesty citrus pulp and forest fruits.

Brilliant beer. Almost faultess. Pours black with lasting mocha head. Bags of grapefruit, orange peel on the nose, some liquorice and a light chocolate malt. Taste is a beautiful blend between refreshment and nourishment. Zesty citrus boosted by the perfect carbonation. Followed by some tobacco and chocolatey malts. Flavors are entirely derivative. But so what. When each element is so distinctive and bold it replaces the need for singularity. Awesome beer. This and Beavertown’s Black Betty are world beating BIPA’s.

Fat citric and haylike hops that go awesome with the roasted malts in the mouth... bitter and fresh fizzy carbs and a big complex finish.. roasted with some caramel... and also a big dense head

Bottle. An impressive big fresh hop aroma from the moment I started to pour. Hops and roast harmonise nicely in the flavour. Good stuff.

leebotton (280) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2015
Bitter coffee aroma with a dusty spice and slight metallic quality. Very fine beige head. Flavour is big on the roasted malts with a zingy fruit citrus accompaniment. Lots of bitterness building up and great thick wholesome mouthfeel.
